Mike Hulsebus Photography: Ann Arbor Art Fair 2006
Once again, July brought the Art Fair to Ann Arbor. And once again the Art Fair
brough a lot of people to Ann Arbor. This photo was taken of friday overlooking one of
This is my third time to the Art Fair here in Ann Arbor. If you want to see more
pictures of the booths than you see on this page, check out my pages from 2005 and 2004.
Honestly there are a lot of people that stay the same from year to year.
I went on Friday with Karen, Spencer, and Mia. Why only Karen pictured? Well,
by now I've learned that people would rather have no picture of them online than an
awkward picture of them online, so i'll go with a good picture rather than one where someone's
hand is in front of someone else's face.
Rather than just art, this year's entry highlights things like the poor shoe choices
people make. Have you ever heard of these things? They're called Crocs and there was a recent USA Today article (opens in new window) if you wanna get filled in.
They look ridiculous but people wear em all over the place.
Bill Secunda, the guy that makes stuff out of nails, brought in 2 mooses. For only $32,000, this could be yours. From
the looks of some pictures he had up in his tent, he mostly sells to zoos and places like that.
The award for most ridiculously dressed goes to this guy.
This guy gets 2nd.
The excited guy in the green shirt is right in the middle of Urban Outfitter's sidewalk sale, which, judging by
the amount of people, is more popular than the art.
Snapped this one of a day on her phone when we were up in the parking structure taking the photo
at the top of this entry.
And what would an Art Fair entry be without a photo of one of Marc Sijan's statues?
There was even a croc shoe selling place. I watched a guy pull out his credit card
and buy a pair of white ones.

Something I hadn't seen before, someone made fountains out of old musical instruments.
I'm not sure who decided that puppies needed to be painted inside martini glasses.
I'm writing this on Sunday so the Art Fair is gone now. Bye Art Fair. Bye Crocs.
Edit July 26: so apparently a lot of people I know own and love their crocs. Who knew?
